Nearly four years after Operation Cast Lead, which killed 1400 Palestinians and left the infrastructure of Gaza in ruins, Israel is once again attacking Gaza. The latest operation, Operation Pillar of Defense, has seen the Israeli Defense Forces conduct upwards of 50 airstrikes causing numerous casualties, including children.
The Coalition Against Israeli Apartheid, Canadian Arab Federation, Palestine House and Canadian Peace Alliance strongly condemn these attacks and urge you to stand in solidarity with Gaza. Together, we have organized a solidarity demonstration for this Thursday, Nov 15th, in front of the Israeli Consulate. Please look for Palestinian flags and be sure to bring friends, family, allies and your banners and voices!
